Some people associate healthy food with tasteless or boring dishes, but it doesn’t have to be that way. With a bit of creativity, you can prepare lunches that, in addition to being delicious, will fill your whole family with an energy lunch break menu.
Ideally, it would help to choose the menu before the week begins. This way, you will know exactly what to buy and the amounts of each ingredient, and you will save time and money.
Here are 7 healthy lunch menu ideas, one for each day of the week:
Monday Lunch break menu
Beef tenderloin with chopped mushrooms and onion.
Prepare quinoa (which can be substituted for 3/1 cup of cooked brown rice) and your favorite vegetables.
Tuesday Lunch break menu
Stewed chicken breast with lots of vegetables
You can replace the potato with Chinese zucchini in the stew, which is low in calories and carbohydrates. Prepare steamed green beans and a little brown rice with leeks as an accompaniment. This is a dish with a lot of fiber and protein, ideal for after exercising.
Wednesday Lunch break menu
Pasta with a sauce based on ground chicken breast, lots of vegetables and tomato.
Accompany it with a good mixed salad. This dish is perfect for eating after an intense workout.
Thursday Lunch break menu
This dish is made in five minutes: grilled fish with baked or sautéed vegetables.
Use whatever vegetables you have. They all go well with fish. Add the seasoning you prefer. You can accompany it with half a parboiled potato or a little brown rice.
Baked pork loin with spices and sugar-free apple jam, accompanied by baked vegetables and half a cup of brown rice.
Zucchini, tomato and onion are super good in this dish. Pork tenderloin is an excellent source of protein; it is super lean and low in fat. If you prefer, you can change it to beef tenderloin.
